Project Twisted is the name of a G5 Challenger that began as a 2009 Challenger RT. Group Five Limited from Mesa, Arizona transformed the silver metallic stock Challenger into a show car for the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The car was displayed outside the Central Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center and received a lot of attention. Its bright yellow custom paint job along with a black satin hood, a brand new Scott Drake Aluminum Fuel Cap Assembly and a K&N air intake system stopped foot traffic.

“We are proud to have K&N as a sponsor on our latest G5 Challenger project for SEMA 2009,” said Chris Wilkins of Group 5 LTD. “K&N makes a nice beautiful air intake kit, part number 57-1542 that is easy to install. It comes with great instructions and allows our Challenger to gulp down more air to the tune of 20 plus horsepower. Not only does it have a clean factory look but it’s much more aggressive and freer breathing over the restricted factory setup.”

It took three weeks to get the build ready for SEMA. “The hood follows the shapes and lines of a 1970s Challenger,” said Wilkins. “We also have front and rear G5 fascias, changes to the wheels, tires and interior for a killer show car.”
